Jack Hunter, talk radio host, Charleston newspaper columnist and Ron Paul 2012 blogger, discusses the Michele Bachmann/Ron Paul debate on Iran policy; why David Frum is (sort of) correct that Republicans live in an alternate reality quite apart from the real world; the consistency of pro-war pundits, from the Reagan era to today; why Bill Clinton and George W. Bush are both responsible for a million Iraqi deaths; and how a timely release of the 2011 National Intelligence Estimate could help avert war with Iran (like the 2007 version did).
Jack Hunter, talk radio host and Charleston newspaper columnist, discusses his article “Ron Paul Won the Debate” in The American Conservative magazine; how Republican candidates ripped off Paul’s talking points, guaranteeing that his message will get lots of airtime through November 2012 even if he’s not elected; the shift in GOP center of gravity in the last 4 years, from Bush’s big government warfare state to Ron and Rand Paul’s (and others’) limited government antiwar clique; and why Ronald Reagan seems like a dove compared to the neoconservatives and right wing nationalists of today.

Jack Hunter, talk radio host and Charleston newspaper columnist, discusses his (sort of) tongue-in-cheek assertion that John McCain supports Al Qaeda; how a stronger case can be made for an Al Qaeda presence in Libya than in (pre-occupation) Iraq; McCain’s “we’re all Georgians now” maneuvering for war with Russia in 2008, proving he never saw a war he didn’t like; Ron Paul’s announced 2012 presidential run featuring liberty, peace and freedom; and how Paul’s message, formerly dismissed as lunatic rantings, has become part of the mainstream American discussion.

Jack Hunter, talk radio host and Charleston newspaper columnist, discusses his co-authored book with Rand Paul, The Tea Party Goes to Washington; how the Tea Party movement is breaking free from the stranglehold of talk radio propaganda and is receptive to a non-interventionist foreign policy; getting serious about Constitutional government and budget deficits – and in the process butting heads with GOP operatives who use the same rhetoric but don’t mean what they say; why the neocons will have a weaker hold on Republicans in the 2012 election than they did in 2008; and Rep. Peter King’s refusal to look beyond the surface of war-on-terrorism causes.
Jack Hunter, talk radio host and newspaper columnist, discusses the cycle of hypocrisy, Left and Right, that turns skeptics to statists whenever their party occupies the White House; why conservatives like Grover Norquist, despite his hypocrisy, should be applauded for questioning the Afghan War; so-called political â€œmoderatesâ€ who are in fact the most fervent warmongering radicals; and why foreign policy isnâ€™t at all a fringe issue, but the definitive political litmus test that excludes people like Ron Paul from his own partyâ€™s convention and makes soul-mates of warmongers of both parties.

Jack Hunter, talk radio host and newspaper columnist, discusses the Barry Goldwater foundation of the modern American conservative movement, why Sean Hannity is too stupid to realize heâ€™s a neocon, how Obamaâ€™s election has made conservatives easier to talk to about foreign policy and how neocons are losing their tightly held grip on Republican talking points.
